With Star Fox Zero, the first new Star Fox game in ten years, a few weeks away from release, Nintendo have brought out the big guns of advertising: puppets.

They’ve brought out The Jim Henson Company puppets they had for E3 2015 and released a trailer that’s two parts game-play footage and one part puppets. Star Fox Zero is the biggest WiiU title on the horizon and despite some negative press surrounding the on-rail shooter for lackluster graphics and GamePad motion controls, this nostalgic blast of advertising is sure to please fans.

Star Fox Zero is set to be released on April 22.

And don’t worry, the Reggie puppet is nowhere to be seen.

I read, I write, I play videogames, Ghostbusters is my favourite thing in the known universe, but quasars come in at a close second. I've been known to cry at the drop of a hat over happy and sad things alike. I've also been known to fly into a rage if things don't go my way, leading to many a fight in high school and breaking someone's nose on the TTC one time. I'm an anxious introvert but also a loud-mouthed bad influence. Especially on my cat. He learned it from watching me, okay!
